Bookreview / July 15, 2018

Second Chance by Jay Northcote is a new book by one of the greatest authors I know. Every single thing he publishes is an automatic buy for me.

Starting from Scratch – Housemates #5
Bookreview / April 30, 2017

And for another day, another wonderful novel from the even more wonderful Jay Northcote. It was send to me as an ARC and let me tell you, I LOVE this story. In the few weeks I have had it, I must have read it at least 5 times already and I know I will be reading it again and again. I love the whole Housemates series, but I especially love this part. Starting from Scratch is part 5 in the series, my reviews for part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4 can also be found on this blog. Ben is transgender (he used to be a girl) and back at university after hormone treatment and chest surgery. His new housemates have no idea about his history and Ben wants to keep it that way. He’s starting from scratch and his life is finally on track, except in the romance department. The idea of dating guys as a guy is exhilarating but terrifying, because if Ben wants a boyfriend he’ll have to disclose his secret. Sid is drawn to Ben from the moment they meet.

Hi, I’m Kris and welcome to the blog tour for The Queer and the Restless, book three in my awesome queer soap opera! Enjoy the blog tour! About The Queer and the Restless Ed Masiello has been on testosterone for a year, is working his dream job as a reporter, and is finally passing as a man (so long as you don’t ask his abuela). But the investigation of a murder case is starting to take over his life. Afraid he’s becoming obsessed, he goes to the local club to relax, and meets the flighty, whimsical Alisha. Alisha is a free spirit who’s tossed aside ambition for travel and adventure.

As their relationship heats up, so does the murder case. Alisha thinks Ed needs a break, but someone’s got to find this killer, and he wants to be there when it all goes down. Besides, taking off into the great unknown with Alisha is crazy. But opting for what’s safe is just another…

Spy Stuff
Bookreview / October 6, 2016

Spy Stuff by Matthew J Metzger is actually the first story I ever read that has a transgender character in the main lead. And I can tell you, I loved it. It broke my hear, made me laugh and cry and I just could not stop reading it until the very end. Absolute brilliance. Anton is transgender, he was born a girl and is now a boy. And because of that he thinks he will never be loved by anyone. After all, who would want a transgender boyfriend. He can hide it only for so long, but as soon as someone finds out they run for the hills. Until there is someone that doesn’t. Jude Kalinowski is as straight as they come, or so Anton always thought. Very very attractive for sure, but someone like Jude would never go for him. But when Jude does ask him out, Anton doesn’t know what to do. At some point he will have to tell the truth, but is there ever a good time to do that? And what will happen when Jude finds out what Anton is hiding? Anton slowly relaxed as Jude started to brighten up and just … talk. Jude…
